#Christmas with Little Known Box - The LIMITED EDITION December Collection*

Little Known Box is my favourite monthly subscription box out there - and believe me, I've tried a fair few #ShoppingAddict #RIPMyBankCard

You can subscribe to receive their boxes monthly or buy one offs, if one box particularly tickles your fancy - which is a nice option and doesn't tie you in to anything, if your cashflow is a bit on the erm... erratic side of life; like mine.

Every month they put together beautifully curated themes, in lux black and gold packaging; sealed with a bow and shipped straight to your door. Each box is crammed full of amazing, innovative hair and beauty products from little known brands - or brand new products from companies that we, as beauty bloggers, are aware of.

You can check out my thoughts on previous month's offerings here [SeptemberOctoberNovember] but legit, this limited edition box is quite simply, something else.

Flint + Flint Moisturiser 3 x, Full Size, 50ml
I love Flint + Flint's branding and packaging - it's every Instagrammer's dream. This cream is a rich repair cream that contains a powerful combo of active ingredients, protects against glycation, boosts collagen and elastin production and regenerates skin. It's had countless great reviews and I really can't wait to put it to the test. I just hope I don't fall too madly in love with it, as it's price tag is a little too high-end for me!

Guys, buy a hat; I've fallen so deeply in love with this product that I do believe a wedding may be on the cards. This is hands down the GREATEST glitter I have ever, ever used - and I can't wait to get my hands on more from GlitterEyes' range.

This little palette is my favourite item from this month's box. I've been using it to create festive makeup looks and am just beyond impressed with its pigmentation and pay-off.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog Little Known Box Limited Edition December Collection Review

I'm a notoriously messy person and have spilt too many pots of loose glitter and powders across my light coloured carpets. Too many. GlitterEyes' pressed glitters prevent this from happening - minimising fallout of product and can be really built up to create dramatic looks this season.

Black eyeliners are always useful - they're a staple in my out-out makeup routine. Not only is this one organic, cruelty free & 100% ethical [something which is becoming increasingly important to me] - it's also really good.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog Little Known Box Limited Edition December Collection Review

It's so soft and applies so well - simply gliding on. None of this scratchy business you get with cheaper liners. I love it; it's perfect for smudging into the lashline to create the perfect, smouldering New Year look. I'm super impressed with this product and it's become a firm favourite in my makeup rotation.

HJ Manicure 5-Free Nail Polish, Full Size
